Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics
Cell phones, televisions, computers and other electronic devices have become an important part of everyday life. Make a career out of the ever-expanding field of electronics by earning an Electronics associate degree at Gateway Technical College. Electronic technicians help engineers design and test new electronic equipment. They also install, maintain and repair all types of electronic equipment. Technicians use software programs as well as advanced diagnostic equipment to diagnose malfunctions.
The Mechatronics associate degree focuses on the design and development of industrial robots and other equipment. Students gain firsthand experience in pneumatics, hydraulics and electrical servo drives. They also test each piece of equipment to demonstrate the interaction between each of the components.
Learn how to assist in designing the products of tomorrow and the machines that make them in Mechanical Design Technology program at Gateway Technical College. Gateway offers two associate degree programs in Mechanical Design Technology and Mechanical Design Technology – Mechatronics. Both mechanical engineering technicians and mechatronics technicians help mechanical engineers design, develop, test and manufacture special machinery, consumer products and other equipment. They develop sketches and rough layouts, record and analyze data, and make calculations and estimates.
The Mechanical Design Technology - Mechanical Engineering Tech associate degree program focuses on industrial machinery and consumer products. Courses will focus on drafting and technical drawing as it is the means by which mechanical engineers design products and create instructions for manufacturing parts. Students will take courses including Elements of Machine Design, Motor Controls, Strength of Materials, Engineering Graphics with CAD and Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing.
Help reduce the need for fossil fuels by obtaining an Electrical Engineering Technology (EET) – Sustainable Energy Systems degree at Gateway Technical College.
Associate degree students learn the foundation of “green” electrical systems. They can perform system maintenance and repair of Solar Photovoltaic systems. These renewable energy systems use solar panels to convert sunlight into electricity.
Learn how to design and work with HDTVs, computers, wireless communication and alternative energy systems with an associate degree in Electrical Engineering Technology from Gateway Technical College. Electrical and electronic engineering technicians help engineers design and develop computers, communication equipment, medical monitoring devices and navigational equipment. Technicians may also work in product evaluation and testing, using measuring and diagnostic devices to adjust, test and repair equipment.
In today’s fast-paced society being able to quickly get from place to place is essential. Become a part of the team designing the highways of tomorrow with a Civil Engineering Technology (CET) – Highway Technology associate degree at Gateway Technical College.
Civil engineering technicians help civil engineers plan the construction of highways, buildings, bridges and other structures. Highway technicians may also estimate construction costs, prepare drawings and develop a list of needed supplies.
As fresh water becomes one of our most valued resources, you can obtain the knowledge and skills necessary to achieve a career that can help preserve this valuable resource.
Gateway Technical College’s Civil Engineering Technology – Fresh Water Resources associate degree program helps students learn civil engineering design and construction, coupled with advanced education in specific areas of environmental assessment, water treatment, storm water management and erosion control.
Many advances in today’s healthcare industry come from the advances in the medical instrumentation used by doctors, nurses, therapists and technicians. Gateway Technical College can help you become a part of a healthcare team through an Electrical Engineering Technology - Biomedical Engineering Technology associate degree.
Biomedical engineering technicians install, test, calibrate and repair medical devices that are used to diagnose and treat patients. They also train medical staff on proper utilization of the equipment.
